Hulu will stream all 800 episodes of TGIF, so say goodbye to any outdoorsy summer plans
Children of the ’90s, listen up! Our streaming dreams are coming true. Hulu is doing it! They’re really doing it. The streaming giant just acquired the rights to TGIF. For those you who don’t remember, TGIF’s run on ABC included some of our favorite ’90s sitcoms like Full House and Family Matters.
So yeah, this is a seriously welcome return.
Hulu signed a deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution for exclusive streaming subscription video on-demand (SVOD) rights to all episodes of Perfect Strangers, Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper, Step by Step, Full House,and Family Matters. The deal includes a whopping 800+ episodes, which means we’ll be pretty darn busy binge watching for the rest of our lives (or more realistically, about a month).
“These shows are more than just beloved hits, they were part of a cultural tradition to tune in every Friday night, said Craig Erwich, Hulu’s SVP of Content. “Now, it can be Friday any day of the week on Hulu.
Ken Werner, president of Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution was equally thrilled about the acquisition (but actually, who wouldn’t be?). “With this acquisition, Hulu is making available to their subscribers one of the most popular comedy blocks of programming ever. These hit family comedies have entertained viewers for decades and will now be available on SVOD.”
Our favorite TGIF shows hit Hulu on Friday Sept. 29th, following Full House’s 30th anniversary and Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper’s 25th. Sounds like pretty great timing, and a great way to celebrate, if you ask us.
